The JUVINALE is open to all debut and final film productions by students and up-and-coming filmmakers. Experience shows that the majority of submissions will come from Austria, South Tyrol and southern Germany.

The JUVINALE Film Festival demonstrates the high value of film as a cultural asset and offers a platform for networking, exchange and, above all, the promotion of young qualitative film in Austria and the neighboring regions. The festival is organized by the Salzburg community TV station FS1 in cooperation with various institutions for the promotion of film culture in Salzburg and Bavaria such as DAS KINO, the association offscreen and CinemaNext.

Making up-and-coming films more visible, offering a forum for up-and-coming filmmakers and the creative industries, further developing Salzburg as a land of up-and-coming films, and sharpening the understanding of Salzburg as a cultural land for younger generations: These are the main concerns of the JUVINALE film festival. Film and filmmaking have a long tradition in the city of Mozart. In addition to its popularity as a film location, Salzburg hosted the Diagonale, Austria’s most important independent film festival, until 1995, when the now internationally acclaimed film festival moved to Graz. The student festival film:riss also made its mark on Salzburg’s film landscape, as did “Creativity Rules”, organized by the MultiMediaArt department of the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences. The JUVINALE builds on this and creates a platform that is intended to benefit all film institutions.Workshops 

The workshops within the JUVINALE teach a professional approach to the development of film and TV productions for the respective market, the search for authors, producers, and suitable broadcasters/distributors as well as for the development of funding applications and financing possibilities. In addition, the workshops provide information on how to deal with copyrights and rights of use and exploitation

He succeeds in keeping up appearances until he overhears a desperate call for help – from Pia Padlewski.

“Abrechnung am Totenbett”: A bounty hunter disguises himself as an Indian. He wants to posthumously prove to a deceased landowner that she led a double life as a wanted robbery killer. He pretends to be a shaman in order to confirm his suspicions behind the back of her grieving maid and finally disappear with the corpse. It is his undoing that the maid does not like this, because she has her own plans with him… – by Alexander Fischer.

Bankerl” : An elderly lady sits down next to a young man on a bench and starts light-hearted small talk, but ignores her interlocutor, who would much rather deal with his own concerns – by Lucas Cantera.
